James Caan Divorce Settlement

Wow, it pays to divorce! TMZ reports that as part of their divorce settlement, James Caan will have to give ex-wife Linda Stoke $400,000 for retroactive spousal and child support. He will also have to pay $3,124/mo in child support until their son finished high school (which will happen next year). In addition, Caan will have to pay at least $5K/mo in spousal support until Linda remarries, or until one of them dies. As for their property and business holdings, the pair will have to split them.

HGTV Divorce Update: It's the Nanny

It's always the nanny. TMZ reports that HGTV's divorcing Flip or Flop couple Tarek and Christina El Moussa has a new wrinkle - he's dating the nanny. Of course he didn't start doing that while the couple was still together; he waited until four months after they separated. Sure he did. And he's not technically dating the nanny, because he fired her "before anything happened" so that he could date her. Sure he did. Prior to this revelation, the couple were still saying that there is a chance they will get back together. Wonder what this news does to those plans?

Blind Gossip Blind Item - From Dour To Delightful

This actor started out on TV, but over the years has moved exclusively into films. One thing that’s always bugged him is that he has never won a major award.

The good news is that this is the year that he has a chance! Who is even happier than him about it? The people around him, including his very pretty actress wife.

"Holy shit! He says that awards don’t matter, but in the past couple of days, he has been smiling non-stop, so he obviously does care. Even though a lot of his movies are funny, he’s actually a pretty dour guy in real life. Getting nominated has made him a delight to be around… which makes everyone around him happy, especially [his wife]. None of us has EVER seen him so up as he has been in the past couple of days! Wish he was like this all the time!"

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Award Season Surgery

We're getting to award season and that means high visibility for our nominated actors and actresses. One A-list actress in particular is feeling the pressure. She's scheduled a series of non-invasive surgeries over the next couple of months and is determined to be looking her very best come Oscar night.

So, tell me, Gossipers;

Who is our surgery queen?

Kardashian Korner

Khloe Kardashian is on the cover of January's Health Magazine. Here's what she had to say in her accompanying interview:

What do you look for when you pick out a pair of jeans?
"I always like a little higher rise because of my little cupcakes or love handles. I've also learned that I love to shop at home. Denim and bathing suits are the two most intimidating things to buy in a store. You have some great sales clerk who's like, "You look fabulous!" And I'm like, "Do I?" I don't even know, with the lighting and the skinny mirrors. I like to order online, or else I buy things like bell-bottoms because I got talked into them. I love bell-bottoms, but I'm not stick-thin. Kendall and I are similar heights, but she has a totally different body than me. She could do bell-bottoms. She's more rock star."

Can you pinpoint when your body transformation started?
"I was going through my divorce, and I just really needed an outlet. I had turned to food and had an unhealthy relationship with food my whole life, and I was like, "Food has never helped me lose weight." So I joined Equinox, and I would go there and put my headphones on and get on the elliptical or the stairs, and no one would bother me or ask me questions—because even at Starbucks, I would get "I'm sorry..." I would watch The Real Housewives or something mindless, and I felt like all the stress I was under, all the paparazzi—I blocked out all that noise. I escaped there, and as a by-product, I started losing weight. Then I thought, "OK, I'm gonna call a trainer, and Gunnar Peterson has been a family friend of ours." He changed my body."

How have you dealt with the haters and critics?
"Some people were like, "It took you so long to lose weight." And I'm like, "I've been fat or out of shape my whole life. It's gonna take time to reprogram my body." But some people were like, "I liked you better when you were fat." I get body-shamed now that I work out! But I don't care what weight I am. It's genuinely about me being healthy. I was never like, "I want to lose 30 pounds in 30 days." Trust me: I've done juice cleanses. I did the Master Cleanse. Like, what would Beyoncé do? But it didn't work for my body and my lifestyle."

How do you handle cravings? You've got jars of cookies and candy everywhere.
"I do. It's like I love to fuck with myself. What's crazy is that I'm so used to it. I don't crave it here. But when I go to someone else's house, you can't stop me. I do believe that if you're having a craving, don't deprive yourself—everything in moderation."

Who's the cook in your family?
"Kylie and me. Kourtney is horrendous. I don't think she knows how to scramble eggs."

One thing that so many women admire about you is your strength, especially during tough times, like Lamar's health crisis. What kept you strong?
"It's so interesting. This is kind of dark, but after that, my whole family changed all of their wills so that I would be their medical adviser, because you don't know how someone reacts until you're put in that situation—God forbid. No one should be put in those situations, but with that, I found strength from within. I was super calm, and I was more like, "It's greater than you," and you just get strength. I pray a lot. And I talk to my dad a lot."

Kendall said that if you were a Disney princess, you'd be Belle: "Bold, beautiful, imaginative, brave, protective, kind, accepting, stubborn, curious, outspoken, [and] independent."
"Oh my gosh. I love that. I do feel like I would date the Beast. The Beast is, like, big and oversized. I didn't like when he turned into the prince. He was cooler as the Beast. My boyfriend's a cutie, so I do like big men."

You mean Tristan Thompson?
"Yeah, Tristan. I'm five-ten, and he's six-nine. I love athletes. Someone who has the same interests as me, who likes to work out, like that's their hobby or their job, that's fine. Tristan is who I'm into. He's a little cutie."

At the end of your life, what do you want to be remembered for the most?
"For me, it's more about how I made someone feel rather than what I did. I'd love for someone to be like, "I love the way she loved me.""

Jezebel Blind Item - Hilary Swank Was Lowballed

What it means to be a woman is on many American women’s minds right now, since our current presidential election is playing out like a gender studies course simulation. Even Chelsea Handler is not immune, and she used an episode of her show Chelsea to explore some of the issues women think about.

Her guests definitely narrow the exploration of what constitutes women’s issues. While there’s plenty of valid criticism for how the gender pay gap isn’t going to be closed by rich white actresses, an anecdote Hilary Swank tells about how she was paid earlier in her career is still fairly shocking. She explains that she only made $3,000 for her Academy Award-winning performance in Boys Don’t Cry, which didn’t even qualify her for health insurance. After her second Oscar win, she was offered a part across from a male lead who had recently become “hot,” but had no critical acclaim. He was paid $10 million and she was offered $500,000. After she turned down the role, the part was given to an upcoming actress who was paid only $50,000.

The Hollywood Reporter's Writer Roundtable Interview

The Hollywood Reporter recently gathered Tom Ford, Pedro Almodovar, Kenneth Lonergan, Noah Oppenheim, Allison Schroeder, and Taylor Sheridan for a Writer roundtable interview. Here are some of the highlights:

Somebody said all writing is autobiography. True or false?
ALLISON SCHROEDER: "True, to a certain extent. You leave your imprint on every screenplay. I like to bring my take as a woman to all my female characters, and that hopefully makes them a little more layered and complex, certainly with Hidden Figures. I interned at NASA for five years, and I grew up in Cape Canaveral, and my grandfather was an engineer on the Mercury capsule, and my grandmother was a software engineer. I literally grew up playing on the Mercury capsule prototypes. So when this came along, I thought: "Yes, I know this world. I know the smell in the cafeteria of NASA.""


NOAH OPPENHEIM: "My mother grew up in Scranton, Pa., in the tiniest two-bedroom apartment you could imagine. But she saved, from the time she was a little girl, every newspaper and magazine about Jackie Kennedy, and particularly the ones in the aftermath of the assassination. And when I would go to my grandmother's — my grandmother still lived in that apartment — I would be in my mom's old room, and I discovered this box of memorabilia, and I was just struck by it, as a little boy, looking at this beautiful woman. And then as I got older, as some boys get into baseball, I got into politics and American history, and I was fascinated by the Kennedys. So I suppose [Jackie] has its seeds in my own story."

TOM FORD: "Isn't there something always autobiographical, though? You're writing the words these people are speaking; they have to go through your filter, even if you're imagining you are Jackie. [Susan, Amy Adams' character in Nocturnal Animals,] is quite literally me. Every time you write, you're writing that character through your lens."

KENNETH LONERGAN: "But interests do exist outside of oneself, and [so does] trying to understand them and see patterns in the world that other people don't see, simply because everyone sees the world from his or her own point of view. In that sense, it goes beyond being strictly autobiographical. I get to see the world the way Pedro Almodovar sees it, and he's also seeing things that are not within himself but outside himself that attract his interest. It's this nice combination of sharing someone else's experience but also sharing their experience of things that are not simply a direct reflection of that person's personality."

PEDRO ALMODOVAR: "I don't mean [my films to be] some verification of my life. No, sir."

LONERGAN: "But you're not writing about yourself at the time. One of my favorite movies, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, is about someone who's in love with flying saucers and outer space and spaceships — which I also am. And it's a very unusual movie because all it's about is a guy who meets a flying saucer and then tries to find it again —"

OPPENHEIM: "— and abandons his family in the process."


LONERGAN: "That's the wrinkle in the story. But I overlook it, as you have to overlook some things."

What did your acting experience bring to your writing?
SHERIDAN: "A tremendous amount. As an actor, and not a great one, I had to do a lot of work to make it seem believable. Exposition in dialogue is something that you do a lot when you're on television, like I was, and it gave me an allergy to that. [Now] I look for absurdly simple plots so that I can simply focus on the characters. And having an understanding of what dialogue is easy to say and what’s hard to say, that's helpful, too. You find yourself playing the scene in your head and hearing them talk, and, "No, he wouldn't say it that way," and it just refines itself."

LONERGAN: "I really don't know what’s going on if I don't hear it embodied by actors. And I can't just show up at the beginning of rehearsal without having heard it a few times already."

FORD: "One actor can deliver the line, and it sounds perfectly natural, and one actor can deliver the line, and it just doesn't sound believable."


ALMODOVAR: "Julieta [which originally was meant to star Meryl Streep] would be completely different if I did it in English [with a different actress]. Once I decided to make the adaptation in Spain and in the Spanish culture and language, I changed a lot. I really even forgot the original short stories by Alice Munro [the book is based on her work] for a simple [reason]: In Spain, there's a guilty complex or the sentiment of guiltiness. And the family culture here [in America] is very different from the Spanish family culture. The language pushed me to do it in a very different way."

Ryan Reynolds Gets Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Entertainment Tonight reports that Ryan Reynolds has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony was attended by his wife Blake Lively, and their two children. Their daughter James, almost 2, was really hamming it up for the cameras! Here are some highlights from his speech:

"I am sitting here looking out at so many people I love and respect, and many people who have put me up here as well, so this is just absolutely unbelievable for me on so many levels," he gushed. "I walked down this street actually when I was 15 years old for the very first time with my brother, Patrick, who is sitting right there, and none of this was here. This was a Holiday Inn, believe it or not, and we left our room in the middle of the night to walk down this boulevard -- partly because we were curious, but partly because it was very apparent that the person in the hotel room next door was being murdered, so we were frightened but we came down here, we walked across this boulevard and we saw all these names and all these legends.

For me to have my name among them now is, it is just beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I always thought that if I got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame that it would be in Burbank, so it is nice that it is here. It's incredible that it is here.

I'm not supposed to talk long so I really want to focus on my family for one. My brothers, Patrick, Terry [and] Jeffrey, who are here, they are my big brothers. They have taught me everything you need to know about love, friendship, unprovoked violence, these guys could --my poor parents in their home -- these guys could turn any wall or a window into an exit immediately. I want to thank my mom, Tammy, who is here, who is, I mean, it baffles me that you have not stabbed all four of us at some point 'cause Lord knows we deserve it. You have four boys that each and every one of them would give their last blood for you, and I think that speaks less to the character of your boys, and more to the character within you, so you know it is very true.

I think we both know why that is -- 'cause I am very good at hiding things. I want to thank my wife, Blake, who is sitting right there, who is everything to me. You are the best thing, the best thing that has ever happened to me, secondly to this star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's the Hollywood Walk of Fame, cut me some slack here! You make everything better, I mean absolutely everything in my life better. You have given us two of the most incredible children I could ever hope to have. You made me the father of my dreams when I thought I only had fun uncle potential, so thank you. I love you. And the last thing I'll say before I get off this stage is a tricky one, it's about my dad. He is no longer with us, he never made things easy on anyone, especially himself, but you know he would have gotten a real kick out of this, so this is also for him."

This female talk show host recently slammed a rival panel talk show. One of the Slammees had a few not-so-nice words for the Slammer.

"Well, at least we got our jobs honestly. She got hers by getting massive plastic surgery, ripping off our format, and fucking the head of the network."

Ouch. This friendly rivalry has suddenly turned ugly!

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Affairs of the Heart

Keep this quiet, Gossipers, because even his wife doesn't know.

I always have a hard time with blind items about affairs. 

I've got no problem with publishing a blind about an affair when the wife knows or the relationship is long over, but blind items about active affairs when one of the partner is still unaware rub me the wrong way. I think it dates back to last year when I published a blind about an affair and a 'friend' of the wife's emailed us about it.

Then, of course, Sam or Scott remind me that I'm a shameless gossip hound and if I wanted to have dignity and self-respect, I wouldn't have entered the journalism arena to begin with.

Our actor is television A-list on one of the hottest shows on the screen. People like him. He's considered a good actor and something of a family man.

He's stepping out on his non famous wife with a famous woman (who even we don't know the identity of).

His wife has no idea and my source swears that she's so trusting of her other half that it's likely she never will.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Zendaya Ponders Fame

Zendaya is on the cover of January's Allure Magazine. Here are some highlights from the accompanying interview:

On whether or not she wants to be famous:
“Eh, I don’t know. Sometimes I do; sometimes I don’t. You just see so many people who are miserable here. It’s like, Why? It’s OK to be focused, but I can’t get to a point where I don’t like what I’m doing. It’s gotta be fun and creative and good.”

On guilt about her fame:
“I ask myself, Would I get the same opportunities—would I have this role or that role—if I were a darker- skinned black women? And the answer is no. But the real thing is how do you take what you’ve been given and use it to better the situations of people that are your peers, your brothers and sisters?”

On red carpets:
“I love to slay a red carpet. When I step on one, I’m a different person, like Sasha Fierce and Beyoncé. Honestly, I walk like an old man—the Coleman Trudge. On the red carpet, I’m this dainty, slow, elegant gazelle...We don’t do pretty. Pretty is boring.”

On starting a national dialogue about race last year after the Fashion Police debacle:
“I got all of these pictures from women wearing locs. I made it my Twitter header, and that became empowering. It became something very positive. It allowed us to talk about things that make us uncomfortable. There was a little girl for Halloween last year that was me from the Oscars. I think that was a big moment not just for me but for women of color. It’s a step in the right direction. But we have a long way to go.”

She swears that a bruised ego doesn’t hurt, but her tattling protests reveal the truth. The woman vows that her happiness is over the moon — but craves fan affirmation to beat down the grey areas of doubt.

Network voices placate her anxiety, renewing her hope for positive feedback. Her groove is a setup for misery…but she just can’t help herself.

Emile Hirsch Talks Sobriety

Emile Hirsch recently appeared on the podcast Happy Sad Confused for his first interview since his arrest at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015. Here's what he had to say, as reprinted by E! News:

"I'm still just so sorry for what happened and still just shocked even that it happened. Also, grateful in a way that you know it gave me an opportunity to make my life a lot better and to do some of the things that helped me in finding ways of just clarity. I went to rehab. I was able to really clean that side of myself up. Just discovering that you know problems with alcohol and bingeing on alcohol and other drugs. These are problems that I was able to see a lot of people face, and maybe I didn't quite realize that before or identify that in that way."

On how this has impacted his relationship with 3-year-old son, Valor:
"Just getting that handled in my life just improved my life in so many ways as difficult as the and the unfortunate as that whole thing was, I'm grateful that I was able to really move forward and improve my life for my son. I'm just so much more present and there for him and that means so much to me. And the quality of just days and not waking up hungover and not knowing what happened or something like that. The stuff is strong."

On rehab:
"I've talked to a lot of people and there's a lot of people who struggle with addiction. And if anything positive can come of it, it would just be getting a little bit more awareness because sometimes you need to hear someone say something about it and be like, 'Your life doesn't have to be this way. You don't have to be like, oh yeah everyone's going out drinking and I have to too because that's the way it is.' But I'm different why do I drink so much more than everyone else? Why does it get to that place? I just have to deal with those consequences. Being in rehab and then jail afterwards I was able to see that it didn't matter if you were an actor or a bar hand or whatever. A lot of people would have problems in that world. It's sort of an equalizer you could say."

On sobriety:
"It means a lot to me to be able to sit here and to really know how much more improved that I've been able to make my life, not just for myself but for my son but for the rest of my family and my friends. I put friends and family and people like that I put them first in my life and I'm able to do that so much more now. When I found that kind of clarity it really improved the quality of my work and the experience of making films. It was so much more fun."

Emmy Rossum Wins Salary Dispute

An update on an earlier story: it appears that Emmy Rossum has won her salary dispute. The Hollywood Reporter announces that Rossum was holding up production for Season 8 of Showtime's Shameless due to the salary talks. She had been paid less than co-lead William H. Macy for the duration of the show, so Rossum was seeking not only parity with Macy, but slightly more than his pay to make up for all of the seasons in which she did not receive parity. No comment on exactly where her final salary ended up, but I think it's safe to say that at a minimum, she is now making as much as Macy. And for the record, Macy was fully supportive of her salary demands.

Carrie Ann Inaba Is Engaged

People reports that Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba, 48, is engaged to actor Robb Derringer, 49. Derringer popped the question over the weekend a a secluded beach cove along the California coast, which was also the site of their first date. Here's what Inaba had to say of the engagement:

“Saturdays are special to us, because our first date was on a Saturday and we have celebrated with a toast, a visit to a beach, special date, a motorcycle adventure, or a road trip on every Saturday since. So on Saturday, we returned to the place of our first date and got engaged at the same place we shared our spontaneous and magical first date. We shared our desire to commit to one another for life by beginning that journey in a very intimate and private way, just the two of us, alone on the beach with a bonfire, a bottle of Aubert Chardonnay and the majestic Pacific ocean that has always been an integral force in both our lives.”

Ryan Lochte Going to Be a Father

Page Six reports that Ryan Lochte, 32, and fiancée Kayla Ray Reid, 25, are expecting their first child together. The American Idiot and the Playboy model have been engaged since October (probably when she found out she was pregnant). This news proves that Ryan Lochte is only good at one thing in life: swimming.

Blind Gossip Blind Item - Staring At Her Nose

This actress has established a solid movie career for herself. She did book tiny roles as a kid because Dad was the Director, but she has been making it on her own since then (although being raised in the world of show biz probably does help).

Someone who has known her for years ran into her at the Critics Choice Awards… and could not stop staring at her nose!

"I knew her when she was young. She had this cute little button nose. Maybe she thought it was too wide or something, because she obviously had a nose job and the bridge is narrow now. The doctor should have stopped there, but didn’t. There’s some weird pushup thing going on with the tip and it looks lumpy when you get in close. The lumpiness isn’t obvious in photos, but when I see her in person I have to keep myself from staring at her nose!"

Deep Thoughts 12/14/16

Do you prefer to thoroughly deliberate options or decisively draw conclusions? Why?

Unforgettable Official Trailer 1 (2017) - Katherine Heigl Movie

The Gossip Life Blind Item - Secret Girlfriend

Gather round, Gossipers, for I have something to tell you.

Do you remember that big, shocking romance of 2016 that didn't make it to the end of the year? Well, it was all fake!

One of the A-list participants actually already had a girlfriend, according to my source, and the girlfriend wasn't happy at her man partaking in a showmance when they were supposed to be together.

'She was tipping off the Sun and the Daily Mail about their relationship,' whispers the source. 'Fortunately his PR team already had a agreement with the Sun and the Daily Mail, and they let his publicist know about the girlfriend's conspiring. It caused a huge argument between the publicity teams and the showmance soon ended, so the girlfriend got what she wanted in the end.'

So, tell me, Gossipers:

Who are our couple?

Matthew McConaughey Talks Career and Sex

Matthew McConaughey recently sat down for an interview with Playboy. Here are some of the highlights:

When you were bulking up for [your new movie] Gold, did you experience any fat-shaming?

"Some people said I looked much healthier. My mom was very happy until I got close to 200 pounds, and then she was like, “All right, fat-ass, that’s enough already. You look like you got two pigs wrestling in your trousers.” But my brother Rooster said, “It’s Pop all over again.” He thought I was so loosey-goosey and fun, he didn’t want me to take off the weight. I got nice and swollen all right, but I told Rooster, “I’m going to lose a little bit of the weight, but I’m going to keep the spirit of Kenny Wells alive.”"

When did you feel the tide turning your way, the birth of what became labeled the McConaissance?
"After around a year and a half of my being off-screen, I got a call from William Friedkin, who wanted me for Killer Joe. I don’t think he would’ve come two years earlier. Steven Soderbergh called with Magic Mike. He’d done plenty of things he could’ve had me in, but he’d never called before. Jeff Nichols had written Mud and wanted me to do it. I did The Paperboy with Lee Daniels. It was like, Fuck the bucks, man, I’m going for the experience. Then we did True Detective and Dallas Buyers Club. The time away gave people a chance to remember work I’d done before, whether it was Dazed and Confused or whatever. I didn’t rebrand in those 18 months; I unbranded. I became some people’s good new idea. People bring up the romantic-comedy years as though I’m another person, another actor. It was the same car, same engine, same me. I just shifted to another gear." 



Although many critics thought you were the best thing about Magic Mike, you dodged playing Dallas in the sequel.

"I wanted to be a part of that, but the idea of Dallas 2.0 was not the way I wanted to go. A lot of times you bring a character back and there’s an inherent apology about who they were. Dallas was too much of a lightning bolt to do that to. If I ever came back and did Wooderson from Dazed and Confused, there could be no apologies there either."

At what point after movies such as Ghosts of Girlfriends Past did you think, Enough with the rom-coms?

"I remember reading another rom-com script, laughing and going, “Fuck, I can do this tomorrow.” That’s a fastball and it’s here right now. Not to get all Hamlet about it, but I debated back and forth: You got something going. You like doing these movies. They pay good. Then it became, Well, what if instead of this fastball, I read something that scares me a little bit? I realized my life was more exciting than my work. I decided to try to get work that could at least compete with the vitality, excitement, joy, love, pain, hope, guilt and spirit I was feeling at that time. I had my epic in front of me: my new son Livingston. My wife and I got married that year, and that also gave me a sense of significance every day, something to work on, build and be there for the first time, with open eyes. I was back in Texas, not showing up on the screen and also no longer on Page Six with my shirt off on the beach. That stuff of “McConaughey’s a good-looking guy on the beach, surfing every day, and he’s got a hot girlfriend” got ladled in along with “He just does those light, fun rom-coms.” Now, some people thought all that was cool, and other people were like, “Fuck him.”"

According to your mother’s 2008 book, I Amaze Myself!, when your dad died in 1992—while having sex with your mother—she insisted that his body be carried out of the house naked because she was “just so proud to show off my big old Jim McConaughey—and his gift.” What specific memories of your father got fed into Gold?
"I really based my character on my father and a guy named Chicago John. I’m 19, 20 years old in Houston, it’s the day before Christmas, and my father says, “Come on, let’s go get some stocking stuffers.” We drive behind this strip mall in southwest Houston where it’s Dumpsters, power lines and a white van flashing its lights through the mist as we pull up. My dad says, “Stay in the car, buddy. That’s Chicago John,” and he gets out. Through the passenger window I see this guy get out of the van—about five-foot-five, black leather jacket, bald. He goes behind his van and opens the doors. There’s a washing machine, sinks, microwaves, knickknacks. This is exciting. Something’s up, and it’s shady. My dad’s and Chicago John’s backs fill up the open van door, and my dad’s shoulders are making this rolling, waving motion. I think, Whoa, what is it, a snake? All of a sudden I see my dad counting off money. He gets in the car, starts it, hands me this thing wrapped in paper and says, “Here, put that in the glove box.” We pull out, no good-bye to Chicago John, get back on Route 59, and not a word gets said until, “Hey, buddy, check the glove box to see if it’s still there.” I open the glove box. What the fuck is it? I unwrap the paper, and there’s this big silver watch. My dad goes, “Goddamn, man, that’s a $17,000 titanium Rolex, and I just got it for three grand. Put it away.” Beats going to Kmart for stocking stuffers, right? My dad loved a shady deal. It’s like he almost wanted to be a gangster but wasn’t. That’s my guy from Gold."

Did your mother contribute to your education in love and marriage?
"When my middle brother and I were growing up, she tried to find us girls. She’d say, “I think you’re really going to like this girl,” but it was more like, “No, Mom, you like that girl. We don’t want to marry someone like you.”"

How did you first learn about sex?
"I think I was 14 when Dad and I had our birds-and-bees talk. He goes, “Hey, buddy, drop your pants. Let’s see what you got. Okay, now these right here? They’re what really make a baby. And this little guy is where the semen comes out. I’m sure the old shower head’s hit it a few times when you were playing with yourself and it felt great.” It was a man-to-man, son-to-dad talk. It was really cool and kind of took taboos off things."

What kind of advice did he give you about women?
"I remember him saying, “There’s going to come a time when you’re with a girl and your hands are going to start up here and then they’re going to move down to the lower parts. Anywhere along that line you feel the smallest resistance, any tension, go no further, which is when the girl is probably going to want you to go a little further. Don’t. The next time you get together, if you still like each other, you’re both comfortable with it and don’t feel that resistance, it’s okay to go a little further.” My first time getting with a girl below the waist, it took me about an hour to get from up here to down there."

Because you got resistance?

"No, because all I’d ever seen was PLAYBOY photos of women standing up that I had hidden in the barn across the neighborhood. They never exposed labia and stuff, so I always thought the vagina faced east-west. I got there and I’m like, Where is it? The next four inches down took me longer than the first hour, because now I’m going, Uh-oh, have I skipped it? Three hours later, I learned that it faces north-south and she was like, “Come on, come on.” I was wonderfully, innocently misinformed."
